PHS's MBC winning streak now 31 after 102-65 win over SCC

The Middle Border Conference winning streak for the Prescott High School boys' basketball team is now at 31 after the No. 9 ranked Cardinals 102-65 win over St. Croix Central Monday evening at Prescott.

PHS finished back-to-back season with 14-0 league records in winning their third straight conference crown.

Mike Harris had 22 points and Owen Hamilton finished with 20. Nick Gehlen scored 19 points and Brookshaw has 13. All of the seniors scored at least three points or more with Syverson scoring three, Bartsch eight, Nielsen seven to with Harris and Gehlen’s totals. 

A close contest early on turned into a blowout, especially in the second half as the 11 three-pointers the Cardinals made meshed nicely with the easy baskets from turnovers and rebound put-backs.

Central was led in scoring by Jason Pribnow’s 22 points.

Prescott finishes its regular season with a 19-3 overall record. The Cardinals will be off until March 4 when they will host the semifinals of the WIAA Division 3 tournament, taking on the winner of the Ellsworth/Somerset game.
